Purpose: The purpose of the HCSDP program is to stimulate the development of partnerships between community-based organizations, schools, and health professionals, exposing under-represented minority (URM) and disadvantaged students to health careers, introducing health career curriculum, improving academic achievement, and promoting healthy lifestyles through education.

The HCSDP program is intended to provide models that can be replicated and utilized by schools (middle and high school), community-based organizations and other educational or health related entities, in partnership, to increase the interest, preparation and pursuit of health careers among URM and disadvantaged students. The final product of each project supported by this grant will be the demonstration of the Adopt A School educational curriculum, and a technical assistance presentation detailing the implementation of the model, intended to enhance and support the portability of the program.

Eligibility: Middle schools, high schools, community colleges, universities, non-profit faith-based and community-based organizations, and health or education professional organizations.
